HDTV is 1280x720 or 1920x1080, which is 16:9 (1:1.78).
So movies with an aspect ratio of 16:9 can always fill the screen without black bars.
Cinemascope movies are wider than that at 1:2.35. If you want to see those without letterbox bars, you'll have to crop off the sides.
Some plasmas have 1024x768 native resolution, so you may want to try 4:3 when used as a monitor.
